Supercritical Drying

Definition of Terms

Supercritical CO2 drying technology is a new chemical technology developed in recent years.

It is a new drying method developed by utilizing the characteristics of supercritical fluid.

Under supercritical conditions, supercritical fluid penetrates into the interior of the object to be dried, mild, fast and solvent. The molecules are exchanged to replace the solvent.

Features Of Supercritical CO2 Drying Technology

When the dry matter is placed in a supercritical environment, the gas/liquid interface disappears, there is no liquid phase surface tension, the drying process is mild, and the damage of the material structure by the drying stress is avoided.

Since the supercritical fluid has a high diffusion coefficient characteristic, the dehydration drying speed is high;

Dry desolvation is carried out under high pressure, and the desolvation process has a bactericidal effect.

Commonly used drying techniques, such as drying at room temperature, baking and drying, etc., often inevitably cause agglomeration of materials during the drying process, resulting in coarsening of the material base particles, sharp decrease in specific surface area, and a large decrease in pores. The acquisition and the preparation of high specific surface materials are extremely disadvantageous. The supercritical drying technique is carried out under the conditions of critical pressure and critical temperature of the drying medium.

Advantages of supercritical CO2 drying

Supercritical CO2 drying technology can be carried out under mild conditions, so it is especially suitable for the drying of heat sensitive materials;

It can effectively dissolve and extract large-molecular-weight, high-boiling, non-volatile substances;

The organic solvent can be easily removed from the solid material by changing the operating conditions.

Application of supercritical CO2 drying

In recent years, as a new type of drying process, supercritical fluid drying technology has developed rapidly. A number of results have been applied to industrial production to date.

For example, drying of anti-biomass pharmaceuticals, preparation of aerogels, and treatment of cells in food and pharmaceutical raw materials, and the like.
